Tammy Jones / Wonderland Sugar Cookies

An Ann Arbor woman followed her dreams and pursued her passions by creating "Wonderland Cookies."  Using her great grandmother's recipe, Tammy Jones bakes sugar cookies that look like edible works of art. Her cookies will be included in the upcoming Westside Art Hop taking place this weekend in Ann Arbor. She talks with WEMU's Lisa Barry about her cookie business.

Cookie lovers can find a unique cookie variety at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market.  Called "Frick'n Good Cookies," they are named after the Frick family who went into business nearly a year ago making and selling cookies with a unique shape and flavor.

Every week during the University of Michigan's football season, a group of Ann Arbor women make sure the players get a taste of "home" by baking them cookies.

Known as the "Cookie Ladies," the women bake up an assortment of cookies which are delivered to the team for every home and away game.

I spoke with the lead baker, Ann Arbor resident Penny Griffin.
